for sort of a mini correction? >> well, we talked about last year that we had uncertainties to overcome, whether -- first, it was whether obama care was going to be the law of the land, then who our president was going to be, and then last piece in the puzzle, which unfortunately is going to take a little while to figure out is the fiscal cliff because the next component of it is going to be the debt ceiling. so i mean it is going to create some uncertainty. if we get into real tension negotiations, you know, it could be ugly again, and i don't see a big huge drop, but we could see a lot more volatility. liz: dan is tuning out anyway because he has a whole bunch of picks that he hopes will have the same type of return that he had for six months on genesse wyoming. your first pick is down 10% over the past year, it's an aerospace pick. >> one of my best analysts did great work on this. it's been a holding on us. owned more and owned less. great longer term holding. they've hit some speed bumps, but we feel comfortable as they're in a good position as the aerospace area continues to grow.

thank you for taking time to come talk with us about this. >> thanks so much, charlie, pleasure. >> just to put this into the context not just of africa but of the broader fight against al qaeda, because president obama has often said that al qaeda is on its way to defeat and it's probably true that the central al qaeda organization which was one headed by osama bin laden and headquartered in pakistan probably matter a lot less now than a few years ago but what you have seen is that as we pit al qaeda in the core area in afghanistan and pakistan it splintered outward and moved outward. and now are you seeing, you know, like a virus trying to find a body in which it can find a weak host. it's moving out and becoming more powerful in places like yemen, somalia, libya, now mali. so it's moving further and further a field and there are so many weak states because this is where terrorists take root. they take root in failed states there are so many failed states in africa it is not just mali there are a lot of other places and now increasingly in north africa too because of the upheavals that
